The Ellison Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies at the University of Washington and the Department of World Languages and Literatures at Portland State University are currently soliciting papers, panels or roundtable presentations for this one-day interdisciplinary conference. Proposals from faculty, K-12 educators, graduate students and members of the general public are all welcome.
Contributions are encouraged on area studies, literature, the fine arts, the environment, post-Soviet foreign policy, historical research, economics, national identity or any other relevant subjects.
